don't know if joe biden is that person, quite frankly, i don't think he is. i don't know who that person would be. it's tough to know. a lot of people would love to see elizabeth warren, but i don't know that she's considered too left. i think it's considered too early in her career, and i don't get the sense that, look, she'll be in that seat for many years if she wants, elizabeth warren, and she's doing a lot of things in the senate all right. so i don't know--i don't know who that person on the left is at this point. >> john: folks, i just want to say we are, of course, winding up current tv, and it's very sad. of course, al gore intended this to be an independent liberal news channel. i'll let people debate how successful because. i think a lot of good programming happened. i thank each one of you for being part of this experiment and for being part of this show when i got to gig. i intended to surround myself with people who are smarter than me, and i thank you for being part of that. >> i don't think any of us would agree that we were better on tv than you. >> john. >>

[applause] you simply say his name and people naturally laugh. but vice president joe biden had some advice for all of us. if somebody is attacking your home, just go outside with a double barrel shotgun and fire both arrows into the air. which is very good advice. if it happens you're being attacked by a flock of geese. on guns, following the horrific tragedy in newtown, president obama came out saying, not let's go come down on the violent criminals like a ton of bricks. but instead, the president said, we will use this as an excuse to go after the constitutional rights of law- abiding citizens. in washington, the momentum was entirely with the president on this. conventional wisdom was that this was unstoppable. and i will tell you that three senators signed a very simple and short note to hear he read that said we will -- harry reid that said we will filibuster anything that prohibits our right to bear arms.

secretary kerry said yesterday was a moral obscenity. the white house felt -- joe biden was speaking in houston, texas, he says there is no doubt that they were used, were these chemical weapons, and there is little doubt who used them. >> for we know that the syrian regime, the only ones who have the weapons have used chemical weapons multiple times in the past, have the means of delivering those weapons, have been determined to wipe out exactly the places that were attacked by chemical weapons. >> all indications point to a cruise missile attack of some sort, perhaps arias sets, allied arias sets as well. we don't know when or who, that coalition is still forming. we don't know what the end goal is. all we do know is what jay carney said today. we know what it's not. >> we are also very much engaged in an effort to support the opposition in its struggle with the assad regime, as the assad regime continues to try to massacre it's a own people in an effort to maintain power. and it's our firm conviction -- [ inaudible ] but this deliberation and the actions that we are contemplating
to the american public has not come out of the president's own mouth so far, it has been joe biden in the clip we saw and before that, john kerry talking about how morally obscene this was. the president himself, his last comments were very equivocal last week in that interview with chris cuomo. even now i see him kind of holding back, reserving his options. but this is snowballing quickly and the president is about to act, not just because of syria, he's worried about iran, he has to be worried about iran in the sense that whatever he does to defend the red line he laid down months ago is going to be closely watched by iran, has its own nuclear weapons program, a new president that's been making overtures about negotiation. >> the audience is bigger than assad and syria if you take military action. the audience i iran, north korea, it is potential users of wmd. this is a key moment for the president. i think there are calls now from congress as we saw that they want some form of consultation, possibly even a vote. i think it would be in the president's self interest to go down that road, to get
's crucial to determining what punishment as i think joe biden called it, and the french ministers have been saying. there must be a consequence, a price to be paid for having done this. in principle i agree with that. but we must be sure we're punishing the right person, and -- and i'm taking the purely intellectual or perhaps slightly political point that it's in everyone's interest that the indication of that person, that authority that is held responsible, be not simply on the basis of gut feeling or the best -- you know, that's what we think. we need it as hard evidence to show the world the proof. and once that is done, the picture will look very different indeed. >> tonight there are indications president obama has a number of options to deal with syria. patty has more. >> reporter: the obama administration says it will respond to this, but the goal, they insist is not to get rid of the syrian president but to send him a message. >> it is not our policy to respond to this transgression with a regime change. >> reporter: they say no decision has been made, but it seems likely the respo
